In April, Juliette Jackson, Soph Nathann, Celia Archer and Fern Ford aka The Big Moon released their much anticipated debut album which is noisy, nostalgic and the epitome of girl gang.
The group formed as lead singer Juliette Jackson had grown tired of working as a cocktail waitress, and seeing her own friends in bands.
She went on to write about 'love and hangovers, robots and the fourth dimension', and find like-minded individuals to form The Big Moon.
The last member to join the group was bassist Celia Archer who tells us: "Through various degrees of separation we came together. The link are quite long so I won't tell you them all!
"We didn't know each other but there was some kind of chemistry when we played Jules' songs she'd written.
"We believed in them and perfected them, but I never believed we would be doing what we are now."
However the group's undeniable chemistry on stage and in the studio gave them hope from the beginning that The Big Moon would become something.
Celia adds: "I think we were just hesitant to admit it at first!"
Since 2014 the group have released a number of EPs, toured with The Maccabees and The Vaccines and played sold out shows of their own.
The debut LP 'Love in the 4th Dimension' was recorded in just 12 days and eventually released in April to great reviews but they'd been sitting on the full album for a while.
Celia says: "Intense? It didn't feel like that at the time. I managed to watch the whole of Stranger Things in one of those 12 days.
"From playing these songs so much live we wanted to be in the right mind place together in the studio too, and it did just fine. We had space to play around then with synths and megaphones and our favourite thing, this guitar of an old can of petrol.
"One day we just yelled on every track and thought "okay maybe we don't need all of that"!'
Tracks including 'Sucker' and 'Cupid', which made it onto the album have been around for a few years now with the group always including them on set lists.
On whether playing them gets repetitive Celia says: "It's great. I'm not sick of playing any of the songs, we have thought "people are going to ask us, are you bored?".
"I never feel like that, it's nice to play all of the songs and getting to do them at headline sets, before we'd each be picking to play this or that for a small set.
"I prefer these bigger shows because it's like "this is ours".'
The record didn't just get good critic reviews, it was also positively received by listeners and the group noticed this during their intimate record shop tour in April.
Celia says: "The reception has been incredible, it's been pretty crazy, it's this thing we've been working towards for three years so everything is different when you have an album.
"It's amazing all the songs people know, on our record shop tour we met all the people who told us that they had stayed up 'til midnight and downloaded it."
And the group have definitely resonated with an adolescent crowd, particularly young girls who are looking for
"It's unbelievable all the diferent ages, there's lots of really young girls. At one of our shows there was a girl in the crowd who was three years old and it was adorable!"
The group are perhaps unknowingly creating a space for listeners in an often male-dominated genre
Celia adds: "That's the nice thing about playing headline shows and record shops, it's just your fans there. When we meet them they're pretty cool so we are dong something right."
In September and October The Big Moon will be heading off on their biggest tour to date, 20 shows in total which is scary, exciting and intimidating for any new group.
On how they're feeling Celia says: "All of the above! It's going to be good I'm looking forward to it.
"It's a month long! I said 'is that even possible around the UK?', but we're playing locations we've never done before."
Celia says: "It's surreal, I've been to KOKO to see 'real' bands play there and now we're headlining it.
"I don't feel quite as nervous about it now from when it was being discussed, it's going to be great!"
